6.1

Acknowledgement - Passing of Dame Kahurangi Nganeko Minhinnick

 

 

 

Resolution number MR/2017/118

MOVED by Chairperson A Dalton, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         express their sincere condolences to the Minhinnick whānau at the loss of Dame Nganeko Minhinnick.  Her loss will be sorely felt by not only the Ngāti Te Ata and Waikato iwi but all those she interacted with over the years. 

Dame Nagneko was a fervent advocate for environmental stewardship and kaitiakitanga (guardianship) in the Auckland and Waikato region.  She was able to articulate the Māori perspective in a way that resonated with elected members.  The health of the Manukau harbour was paramount.

She had a formidable presence and was a leader in achieving policy and legislative change that provided for Māori aspiration.  Some would attribute the strength of her advocacy to the inclusions of Māori concepts and values in the Resource Management Act, such as mauri (life force) and kaitiakitanga.  These have since become commonplace in modern environmental practices.

Dame Nganeko fought long and hard to see the protection and care of wāhi tapu (sacred place) impacted by Glenbrook Steel Mill.

In recent times she had been invited to address several indigenous forums to share her perspectives, experience and encourage other indigenous groups to take a stand for social, cultural and environmental justice.

She was a mother, a grandmother, a matriarch for her whanau and the people of Ngāti Te Ata growing up for most of her life in Waiuku near the Manukau harbour and the Waikato River.

Go in peace on your final journey.

Project 17: Auckland Council Maintenance Contracts

 

Resolution number MR/2017/126

MOVED by Member A Cunningham-Marino, seconded by Deputy Chairperson R McLean:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)         note that all the smart procurement measures are a priority for the board.  Rather than select four priorities at this stage the board wish to review the outcomes within six months from 1 July 2017.  In reviewing the measures the Manurewa Local Board will use the 18 July 2016 report that the local board, along with two of the other southern local boards, worked together with Mana Whenua through 2015/2016 to produce a document entitled “Improving Māori Input into Local Board Decision Making”.  Through the process of working together, all shared a common population outcome that: “All Māori in Manurewa, Ōtara-Papatoetoe, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu and Papakura are healthy, well, thriving and fulfilled spiritually, mentally, culturally and physically”.  It was agreed that what was good for Māori should be good for the whole population.

b)        note that whilst community and workforce (smart procurement) targets will be developed over the next six to 12 months to establish a baseline, the local board will have an opportunity to have an input into this process.

c)         wish to review within a six month period, based on operational feedback, site specific issues that are unique to the local board that may require particular attention over and above standard maintenance service specifications.

d)        note that Auckland Council will continue to encourage, support and work with volunteer and community groups across the region in alignment with the new maintenance contracts.

e)         recognise that the asset register is incomplete and when assets are added that the no additional funding from the local board Locally Driven Initiatives’ budget is required.
